Adam Greenway has been announced as the preferred candidate to lead Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.
Greenway is dean of the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Ministry at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) in Louisville, Ky., where he is also the William Walker Brookes Associate Professor of Evangelism and Apologetics.
Greenway also serves as chairman of the Committee on Order of Business for the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). He has also served as assistant parliamentarian for the SBC and parliamentarian for the Kentucky Baptist Convention (KBC). Greenway is also a past president of the KBC and former trustee and chairman of the board for LifeWay Christian Resources.
He previously served as pastor and interim pastor of churches in Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Texas and Florida, according to his SBTS faculty page. Greenway received a bachelor of arts degree from Samford University, master of divinity from SWBTS, master of nonprofit administration from the University of Notre Dame and doctor of philosophy degree from SBTS.
A nine-member search committee began seeking candidates for the position last August after former president Paige Patterson was terminated in May for mishandling sexual assault allegations. D. Jeffrey Bingham, dean of the School of Theology at SWBTS, currently serves as interim president.
